                  I remember reading those facts before.

                  Here's some interesting facts between Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy from this piece of paper I found.



                  The names Lincoln and Kennedy each contain seven letters.

                  Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.

                  Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
                  John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

                  Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
                  John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

                  Both of their wives lost their children while living in the White House.

                  Both Presidents were shot on a Friday, in the head, with one bullet.

                  Both were rumored to be killed in a conspiracy.
                  Neither was confirmed to be a conspiracy.

                  Lincoln was shot in the Ford Theater.
                  Kennedy was shot in a car made by the Ford Motor Company (a Lincoln no less)

                  Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy.
                  Kennedy's secretary was named Lincoln.

                  Both were assassinated by Southerners.

                  Both were succeeded by Southerners.

                  Both successors were named Johnson.

                  Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
                  Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.
                  Their first names both contain six letters.

                  John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
                  Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.
                  Both assassins were known by their three names.
                  Both names comprise fifteen letters.

                  Booth ran from the theater and was caught in a warehouse.
                  Oswald ran from a warehouse and was caught in a theater.

                  Both assassins were assassinated before their trials.

                  The only complete filming of Kennedy's assasination was shot by Abraham Zapruder.
                  The only complete account of Lincoln's assasination was written by John Zelfindorfer.

                  Lincoln's last child, Tad, had his funeral held on July 16, 1871.
                  Later he was exhumed and moved to a different grave site.
                  Kennedy's son JFK Jr. was lost at sea on July 16, 1999.
                  Later he was found, brought up, and then re-burried at sea.

                  A week before Lincoln was shot, he was with friends in Monroe Maryland.
                  A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with his friend Marilyn Monroe.
